**Abstract:**

Based on the idea of the black hole molecule proposed in [Phys. Rev. Lett. 115 (2015) 111302], in this paper, by choosing the appropriate extensive variables, we have solved the puzzle whether the molecules of the Reissner-Nordström black hole is an interaction or not through the Ruppeiner thermodynamic geometry. Our results show that the Reissner-Nordström black hole is indeed an interaction system that may be dominated by repulsive interaction. More importantly, with the help of a new quantity, thermal-charge density, we describe the fine micro-thermal structures of the Reissner-Nordström black hole in detail. It presents three different phases, the

*free*,

*interactive*and

*balanced*phases. The thermal-charge density plays a role similar to the order parameter, and the back hole undergoes a new phase transition between the

*free*phase and

*interactive*phase. The competition between the

*free*phase and

*interactive*phase exists, which leads to the extreme behavior of the temperature of the Reissner-Nordström black hole. For extreme Reissner-Nordström black hole, the whole system is completely in the

*interactive*phase. What is more significant is that we provide the thermodynamic micro-mechanism for the formation of the naked singularity of the Reissner-Nordström black hole.

**Abstract:**

By modeling the fragmentation process with the dynamics model and permitting only evaporation in a statistical code, the main features of the projectile fragmentation at 600 MeV/nucleon were studied in our previous work [Phys. Rev. C,

**98**: 014610 (2018)]. In this work, we continue and extend it to the isospin dependence of the projectile fragmentation at several hundreds MeV/nucleon. We devote ourselves to searching for isospin observables related to the isospin fractionation to extract the symmetry energy. It is found that at the pre-equilibrium stage of the collisions, the isospin diffusion will take place and affect the isospin of the final fragments. At the fragmenting stage, the isospin fractionation plays a part. Comparing to the soft symmetry energy, the stiff one provides smaller repulsive force for neutrons and attractive force for the protons in the neutron rich system at subnormal density, and hence causes smaller isospin asymmetry of the gas phase, leaving a more neutron rich liquid phase. The robust isospin observable is proposed for extracting the slope of the symmetry energy at the normal density by the isospin dependence of the projectile fragmentation at hundreds MeV/nucleon.

The solutions of relativistic viscous hydrodynamics for longitudinal expanding fireballs is investigated with the Navier-Stokes theory and Israel-Stewart theory. The energy and Euler conservation equations for the viscous fluid are derived in Rindler coordinates with the longitudinal expansion effect is small. Under the perturbation assumption, an analytical perturbation solution for the Navier-Stokes approximation and numerical solutions for the Israel-Stewart approximation are presented. The temperature evolution with both shear viscous effect and longitudinal acceleration effect in the longitudinal expanding framework are presented and specifically temperature profile shows symmetry Gaussian shape in the Rindler coordinates. In addition, in the presence of the longitudinal acceleration expanding effect, the results of the Israel-Stewart approximation are compared to the results from the Bjorken and the Navier-Stokes approximation, and it gives a good description than the Navier-Stokes theories results at the early stages of evolution.

**Abstract:**

A DGP brane-world model with a perfect fluid brane matter including a Brans-Dicke (BD) scalar field on brane has been utilized to investigate the problem of the quark-hadron phase (QHP) transition in early times of the Universe evolution. The presence of the BD scalar field comes up with some modification terms in the Friedmann equation. Since the behavior of phase transition strongly depends on the basic evolution equations, even a small change in these relations might come to interesting results about the time of transition. The phase transition is investigated using two scenarios of the first-order phase transition and smooth crossover phase transition. For first-order scenario, which is used for intermediate temperature regime, the evolution of the physical quantities, such as temperature and scale factor, are investigated before, during and after the phase transition. The results show that the transition occurs in about micro-second. In the next part, the phenomenon is studied by assuming a smooth crossover transition where the lattice QCD data is utilized to obtain a realistic equation of state for the matter. The investigation for this part is performed in two regimes of high and low-temperature. Using trace anomaly in the high-temperature regime specifies a simple equation of state which states that the quark-gluon behaves like radiation. However, in the low-temperature regime, the trace anomaly is affected by discretization effects, and the hadron resonance gas model is utilized instead. Using this model, a more realistic equation of state could be found in the low-temperature regime. The crossover phase transition in both regimes is considered. The results determine that the transition occurs at the time around a few micro-second. Also, it is realized that the transition in the low-temperature regime occurs after the transition in the high-temperature regime.

With the realistic CD-Bonn nuclear force, we analyze the dependence of the nuclear matrix elements on the iso-vector and iso-scalar parts of proton-neutron particle-particle interaction. The dependence on the different nuclear matrix element is observed and the results are explained. We also give the phase space factors with numerical electron wave functions and properly chosen excitation energies. Finally we give our results for the half-lives of this decay mode for different nuclei.

We study the electroproduction of the LHCb pentaquark states with the assumption that they are resonant states. The main concern here is to investigate the final state distribution in the phase space in order to extract the feeble pentaquark signal from the large non-resonant background. Our results show that the ratio of the signal to background would increase significantly with proper kinematic cut, which would be very helpful for future experimental analysis.

**Abstract:**

The preference of the normal neutrino mass ordering from the recent cosmological constraint and the global fit of neutrino oscillation experiments does not seem like a wise choice at first glance since it obscures the neutrinoless double beta decay and hence the Majorana nature of neutrinos. Contrary to this naive expectation, we point out that the actual situation is the opposite. The normal ordering opens the possibility of excluding the higher solar octant and simultaneously measuring the two Majorana

**Abstract:**

In this study, two novel improvements for the theoretical calculation of the neutron distributions are presented. First, the available experimental proton distributions are used as a constraint rather than inferred from the calculation. Second, the recently proposed distribution formula, d3pF, is used for the neutron density, which is more detailed than the usual shapes, for the first time in nuclear structure calculation. A semi-microscopic approach for binding energy calculation is considered in this study, however, the proposed improvements can be introduced to any other approach. The ground state binding energy and neutron density distribution of

^{208}Pb nucleus are calculated by optimizing the binding energy considering three different distribution formulae. The implementation of the proposed improvements leads to a qualitative and quantitative improvement in the calculation of the binding energy and neutron density distribution. The calculated binding energy agrees with the experimental value, and the calculated neutron density shows fluctuations within the nuclear interior, which agrees with the predictions of self-consistent approaches.

**Abstract:**

The spatial-dependent propagation (SDP) model has been demonstrated to account for the spectral hardening of both primary and secondary Cosmic Rays (CRs) nuclei above about 200 GV. In this work, we further apply this model to the latest AMS-02 observations of electrons and positrons. To investigate the effect of different propagation models, both homogeneous diffusion and SDP are compared. Different from the homogeneous diffusion, SDP brings about harder spectra of background CRs and thus enhances background electron and positron fluxes above tens of GeV. Thereby the SDP model could better reproduce both electron and positron energy spectra when introducing a local pulsar. The influence of background source distribution is also investigated, in which both axisymmetric and spiral distributions are compared. We find that taking account for the spiral distribution lead to a larger contribution of positrons for energies above multi-GeV than the axisymmetric distribution. In the SDP model, when including a spiral distribution of sources, the all-electron spectrum above TeV energies is thus naturally described. In the meantime, the estimated anisotropies in the all-electrons spectrum show that in contrary to the homogeneous diffusion model, the anisotropy under SDP is well below the observational limits set by the Fermi-LAT experiment, even taking a local source into account.

**Abstract:**

The quintessence-like potential of vacuum energy can meet the requirement from both quantum gravity and the accelerating expansion of the universe. The anti-de Sitter vacuum in string theory has to be lifted to the meta-stable de Sitter vacuum with positive vacuum energy density to explain the accelerating expansion of the universe. Based on the possible large scale Lorentz violation, we define an effective cosmological constant which depends not only on the bare cosmological constant but also on the Lorentz violation effect. We find the evolution of the effective cosmological constant exhibits the behavior of quintessence potential when the bare cosmological constant is from string landscape in contrary to the existence of local minimum during evolution while the bare cosmological constant is supplied by the swampland. The critical value of bare cosmological constant is approximately zero for the behavior transition. The frozen large scale Lorentz violation can uplift the AdS vacua to an effective quintessence-like one in this sense.

**Abstract:**

We study heavy flavor properties at finite temperature in the framework of a relativistic potential model. With an improved method to solve the three-body Dirac equation, we determine a universal set of model parameters for both mesons and baryons by fitting heavy flavor masses in vacuum. Taking heavy quark potential from lattice QCD simulations in hot medium, we systematically calculate heavy flavor binding energies and averaged sizes as functions of temperature. The meson and baryons are separately sequentially dissociated in the quark-gluon plasma, and the mesons can survive at higher temperature due to the stronger potential between quark-antiquark pairs than that between quark-quark pairs.
